exellent place to start Hinduism study
I believe this book is an excellent place to start the study of Hinduism. Coming from a scientific background I wondered how there could be a introduction to such foreign ideas.
What I found was a simple line of religious reasoning, many comparisons with actual life and helpful ideas solving problems, and accepting circumstances.
I did not realize there were so many Upanishads.
